The Center for Tribal Studies and the Department of Cherokee and Indigenous Studies at Northeastern State University in Tahlequah, OK, announce the first Revitalizing Endangered Languages Conference (RELC). This year's theme is 'Revitalizing languages in the home.'
The keynote speaker is Dr. Leanne Hinton.
RELC takes place at the end of the 42nd Annual Symposium on the American Indian and Powwow (April 7-12, 2014). The theme of this year's Symposium is 'Thriving Nations - Resilient Peoples.' Information for the Symposium is at http://www.cts.nsuok.edu/NSUSymposium.aspx.
After the Saturday workshop session, participants will have the opportunity to attend a Powwow that brings together well-known fancy dancers and local Oklahoma tribes. Participants are also invited to arrive in time for the Indigenous Language Revitalization and Documentation Workshop that precedes RELC; this year's theme is 'Talking Dictionaries for Indigenous Languages.' The revitalization workshop occurs on Thursday evening and all day Friday (April 10-11, 2014).
Registration is $50 for faculty, $30 for students and elders. This fee is primarily a fundraiser for the symposium (it also pays for refreshments and a catered lunch). Make checks payable to NSU with 'Center for Tribal Studies-RELC' in the memo. Submit to:
